Text of measure

The language appeared on the ballot as:[3]

The present law of Ohio prohibits the manufacture and sale of oleomargarine containing any coloring matter.

The proposed law would change the present law so as to permit the manufacture and sale of oleomargarine colored with any coloring matter which may lawfully be used in the manufacture of butter or other foods intended for human consumption. It would also require that an individual serving of oleomargarine served to a patron of a public eating place be plainly market with the letter "M."


SHALL THE PROPOSED LAW TO PERMIT THE MANUFACTURE AND SALE OF COLORED OLEOMARGARINE BE APPROVED? [4]
